Rev_Ken_Howard Ken Howard, a Christian of Jewish origins, is the pastor of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church, in Germantown, Maryland, the church he founded in 1995, and the author of the new book, "Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community Beyond Us and Them." Ken holds a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary, and received honors in Church History for his ground-breaking research into the Jewish origins of early Christianity, published in "Jewish Christianity in the Early Church: How the Church forgot its Jewish Roots." Respected and trusted for his expertise in conflict resolution and consensus building among groups with opposing theological and political views, Ken has been called upon to facilitate dialogs on issues ranging from human sexuality to interfaith relations. When not occupied with the business of pastoring and growing the theologically diverse congregation he helped plant, Ken provides presentations, training, and coaching on the concepts outlined in "Paradoxy," as well as in church planting and congregational vitality.
Kenny Jesus is the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Jesus.
